    "Wonderful story!"
    Would you listen to A Swiftly Tilting Planet again? Why?

    I read this book when I was young so it was a treat to listen to it. Even after all of the years between then and now it remains a wonderful story that is full of hope and promise and some history as well. Madeline L'Engle is a fanstastic story teller.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Swiftly Tilting Planet?

    All of it was great, but I particularly liked the parts where Charles Wallace entered into other characters to reveal their stories.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Ehle???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I really enjoyed her reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wouldn't say that there was one moment, there were many - most of them dealing with the character of mankind.

    "Re-experience the magic"

    I was a precocious reader and wished to re-experience some of my fond childhood places. I found it every bit as charming as I did the first time so many years ago. Still entertaining and still enlightening.

    "A poor delivery"

    I suspect that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I might have done, because Jennifer Ehle's reading was truly awful.
